This is a sentence from my Italian CPT

Emilia Romagna ha otto province. Le otto province sono Bologna, Ferrara, Forlì-Cesena, Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Ravenna, Reggio Emilia, e Rimini.

Do I need to add la and il before each province?

Essempio: Le otto province sono la Bologna, la Ferrara, la Forlì-Cesena, la Modena, la Parma, la Piacenza, la Ravenna, la Reggio Emilia, e i Rimini.

My italian is not very good.

Simple answer...
No you don't need to add anything. Your wording is fine as it is!

Hi,
You have to add the article before Emilia:

L'Emilia Romagna ha otto province...
